that's really rotten luck. Was the person an employee or self employed. If you have a contract with them you can put all sorts of restrictive covenants to stop this happening. If you are interested in having this just send me an e-mail and I'll get it over to you asap

I'm to go and collect some money he owes me later in week so will try to ammicably settle the rest. If he refuses, well I'll walk away.
Get this though! He's now poached one of my boys who will do the work for a fraction and has left me high and dry. It really sickens me.
Thanks Philip for the T&C's though. I will certainly put them to good use from now on.
